In the trailer, you can see Charles Manson, played by Matt Smith, surrounded by the women as he brainwashed them into his cult. The movie will put us into the mindset of people who were forced by Manson to commit terrible acts.
The movie was first released in September 2018 at the Venice Film Festival, and since then, the critical response was not so good. The movie also gets 44% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 9 reviews. However, you can judge for yourself whether "Charlie Says" is a worthy addition to the ongoing Manson film trend when it released in theaters on May 10, 2019.
